49ers' head coach Jim Harbaugh analyzes the game and his team

The San Francisco 49ers are only a few weeks away from the opening of training camp. Unlike 2011, when the lockout shortened the preseason, head coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff will get a full training camp to evaluate players and implement their systems.

The 49ers finished the regular season at 13-3, won their first playoff game against the New Orleans Saints and advanced to the NFC championship game. A pair of turnovers on punt returns and the inability to convert on third down cost them a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

Expectations for the 2012 squad are sky high, and a full training camp will be a major benefit to the 49ers. The 49ers have upgraded their offensive personnel, while keeping their stellar defense together for the coming season.

The coaching staff of the 49ers is one of the best in the NFL. The full training camp will enable them to work the players and teach them exactly what they want to have done.

Several 49ers have had issues during the spring and in OTAs, while others have taken a step forward in the eyes of Harbaugh. Many other players, in fact most of them, have simply met expectations and are on track with what the coaches want.

Let's take a closer look at 10 key players whose stock has either risen or fallen, as training camp nears.
